INTRODUCTION | Jefferson County WI MABAS #118

INTRODUCTION

MABAS has long recognized the need to mobilize large numbers of emergency response personnel for major incidents that will exceed the normal response characteristics of a single fire department and even a single MABAS division. Examples of these types of incidents include, but are not limited to, major fires, mass casualty incidents, tornadoes, earthquakes, terrorist attacks, technical rescue events and hazardous materials incidents. MABAS allows for two primary mechanisms for organizing a major response to an incident; Interdivisional Responses and individual state responses through state Emergency Management or EMAC.
